Airbus Poland handed over to the 41st Training Aviation Base simulator of the PZL-130 TC-II training aircraft, designed to conduct training of pilots in conditions similar to real ones.
AIRBUS POLAND HAS HANDED OVER TO THE POLISH AIR FORCE THE GLIGHT SIMULATOR FOR PZL-130 TC-II ORLIK TRAINER AIRCRAFT
The device will be installed in the 41st Training Aviation Base in Dęblin.
The simulator installed in the 41st Training Aviation Base meets the requirements of current defence standards and will be used to train cadets in the areas of emergency procedures testing, engine starting, taxiing, take-off and landing, and to perform training from the Aviation Training Program. Flying on the simulator will significantly relieve the training aircraft fleet and increase the safety of training. In addition, the Acrobatic Team “Orlik” will use the simulator for its flight training in the team.
The device consists of three rooms. The first is the position of the trained pilot, which consists of the aircraft cabin with original equipment. Six projectors display the highest quality visualization delivered by Rockwell Collins company. The position of the pilot’s instructor is almost realistic cabin of the aircraft, where the visualization is displayed on five 65- inch screens. Thanks to this second position of the instructor pilot, military pilots can learn how to fly in pairs. The simulator has a function to save and play back recorded flights in real time, which makes it the only simulator in Poland, on which you can perform a flight in formation up to 6 aircraft.
The supervising instructor’s position is a room where the instructor sets the parameters of the flight and at any time can initiate various types of events (failures) in order to check if the trainee will manage them according to procedures.
Together with the simulator, Airbus Poland S.A. also provided the documentation, logistic package and training in the use and operation of the device.
The simulator was designed and manufactured in cooperation with ETC-PZL Aerospace Industries.
At present, Airbus Poland S.A. is carrying out a contract for a thorough modernization of the second batch of Orlik training aircraft whereby the entire fleet of Orlik military aircraft will be unified.
